We Feared the Deer - Despite the loss at the Bradley Center and the exit yesterday, the Bucks year was simply inspiring, amazing and astounding. This was a team most people had set to win perhaps 20 – 30 games and not even get within a whisper of the playoffs. You can praise pretty much everyone involved with this team, from top to bottom it was a great, unexpected year. For the first time in…maybe forever, I will be paying attention to what happens in the off-season for the Bucks and see what Hammonds can do to keep a team that is on the rise intact and competitive for years to come.
Spoiler alert – just a heads up we’ll be starting a new, weekly feature on Thursday afteroon. That’s all I will say for now but make sure to follow @pocketdoppler on Twitter or become a fan on Facebook to make sure you’re notified when it is posted.
